Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning regular AC maintenance is useful.

Checkups keep your air conditioner equipment in Ocala operating at its top performance while keeping utility consumption down. It also could even help extend its life span.

While there are several tasks you can do alone, you should hire Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and maintenance.

Here are a few steps you can complete by yourself as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a time of revival, and to many that entails a large amount of home, garage and yard sprucing. With the toastier temps near, it’s also a great idea to put AC maintenance on that checklist.

Spring is the best time of year to get your cooling equipment freshened and checked out. Waiting to switch it on until the first warm day of the summer can be a gamble. If you have to have repair or installation, you may be waiting a long time for a technician. And that may turn very unbearable.

And for people with allergies, being ahead of the game with a fresh air conditioning system will help assure the best indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Plus, AC upkeep might be mandatory for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any extra extended warranty.

Can I Finish a Tune-Up Myself?

There are steps that you can do to help keep your air conditioner system in the best condition:

  • Change your air filter. Dirty filters restrict airflow and could reduce your unit’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you install, the U.S. Department of Energy advises each month or two. This is particularly necessary if you suffer from allergies or have pets in your home.
  • Lawn upkeep by the outside condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes by your AC system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open area. You should also remove any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your system, as this could limit airflow.
